Sheer unmitigated awesome.  Click for full-size.

Ahem, fixed.

Sure it’s Summer, but what better time to take a peek into the mysterious world of the Teachers’ Lounge?

This 2005 short was directed by David Wain, and is chock full of familiar faces (all of whom are no strangers to working with Wain).  I’ve heard rumors that this is being developed into a series, so there may be more on the horizon.

If you’re looking for a good read to keep you away from that pile of work, I heartily recommend Joshua Davis’s piece on Hans Reiser, a Linux developer who is now facing murder charges over the disappearance of his ex-wife.  It’s both a fascinating crime piece, and an intimate look into the lives of those who work to make open source software as good as it can be.

Tom Jones & Donny Osmond doing ‘Girl from New York City’.  Seriously. 

Fun fact, I’ve ridden the now-defunct Orient Express roller coaster at Worlds of Fun with one of these two.

Facebook is making a serious dent in the social networking pie, so it’s only natural that Facebook start getting the same parody treatment that MySpace has gotten over the years.

I quite liked this Facebook nod to John Woo’s Face/Off from College Humor’s in-house creatives.

I don’t know about you, but it was a long night for Casa del Mono.  So let’s get some happy going with this great little game, Light Sprites.  Use your mouse to angle orbs into a series of targets, all the while reveling in the gleeful goofiness of the games soundtrack and art style.

Sure, every guy has thought of having a sweet, sweet sword around the joint to spice up the walls and showcase their inner ninja, but have you ever stopped to think about the dangers? Thankfully, Channel 101’s Cautionary Tales of Swords is here to smack down your ignorance with these terrifying true tales of bladed horror.  I probably shouldn’t have to mention that it’s got NSFW audio. You should watch due to the fact that it features, JD Ryznar, who played Michael McDonald in the much-loved Yacht Rock series.

Thanks to Beaucoup Kevin for the find.

What do you get if you cross The Beach Boys with Electronica? Well, I’m not sure either, but I bet it sounds a lot like Panda Bear. His most recent album, ‘Person Pitch’ is a strange (but pleasant) blend of Pet Sounds and an alien spaceship.

Here’s the psychedelic lightshow clip for Bros.
